A look at a developmental map of consciousness, Spiral Dynamics. Evolution is vertical, are we looking horizontal?
Note: Each level, or meme, of the wave is holistic. This means that it includes and transcends former levels. It can go up and down, mix various levels at the same time. It has been compared to a storm or tornado spiral of alternativing waves, but what is also true is that a culture gravitates toward a certain perspective at a particular time. So, yes, each meme here is just a general overview, and you will see it before it became the dominant wave in a society. That’s normal and natural.
